September 26, 2011


As I had thought, Jacques Pepin’s Garbure was a smash! As he had taken one liberty with the “classic” recipe (he substituted ham for the classic duck confit), I made one substitution of my own.  In stead of using the number of smoked ham hocks, I substituted an equivalent amount of roasted ham I had in the freezer.  If the dish was lesser for it, you could have fooled me. It just reeked of flavor.  The one other change I would do would be to eliminate the crouton and serve plenty of French bread for dunking.  This dish is the one pictured on the cover of this month’s Food and Wine. I totally recommend it!

This is a tough week to schedule food for.  The week begins with temperatures in the 80’s and finish in the rainy 60’s. I think however, that is the last of the really warm weather.  It is officially and practically fall now.

  1. Will start taking a picture of the wine bottle so I have a record. Won't post the picture, but will go back to posting the evening wine, or in rare cases beer.
